Now that NYC is frigid, and I have to commute into the city almost daily, I needed some clothing that would keep me warm without adding any additional bulk – and with holiday parties right around the corner; I also wanted items that could easily transition from day-to-night. That's when I hit up UNIQLO and discovered their #HEATTECH collection.
The best thing about this collection is that each piece keeps you #warmtothecore, and you have the option to layer for additional warmth. The acrylic blend of fibers traps moisture that is produced by the body and converts it into heat; this creates warmth that is built to last. Another plus is the tops are a smooth cotton weave; this gives the styles a soft and luxurious feel against the body.
When I put this look together I, of course, had the holidays in mind. I paired UNIQLO's #HEATTECH L/S Turtleneck T-Shirt under their merino cardigan and #HEATTECH flat-front pants. To keep me extra warm and add some color, I grabbed the Ultra Light Down Jacket and #HEATTECH beanie. It did just the trick to create a warm layered look that can take me to the office and to a holiday party, and not add additional bulk. Check out the full #HEATTECH collection here.
